Last week, Omega sent me the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Titanium Liquidmetal – introduced at Baselworld just two months ago.

Still a cool watch, can’t wait for the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal version though.
This is a great watch. Omegas have been historically more affordable than Rolex, I wonder what made them mark this one for the exuberant price of $8500? I think that’s more expensive than the Submariner.
John, this model being titanium, is it a lot lighter on the wrist than the stainless steel watches in its class? It looks every bit as beefy as the steel versions.
Omega has made no secret of the fact that they are trying to exceed Rolex, and are aping many of Rolex’s strategies, including pricing. If you take two otherwise identical watches, one in SS, the other in Ti, the Ti watch will be lighter. For it’s size, this watch is a good weight.
Hi John and thanks for your site!
If one is looking to buy a Planet Ocean would you advise to wait for the new movements or go ahead and buy one with the existing movement? Does it really make that much difference to the performance of the watch and how much do you think it will effect re-sale values?
From a long term value standpoint, it makes sense to wait.
